Google is planning to combine all its travel-related services and bring them under one umbrella. The new service will be called Trips and is different from Google Trips which is another travel app from Google.

The new service is currently available on the web and can be accessed from google.com/travel. The service will now act as a one-stop shop for travellers and will include travel packages, hotels and flights. Google will allow users to see their itinerary even if they didn’t book it via Trips.

 Last year, we simplified trip planning by making navigation between Google Flights, Hotels, and Trips easier on smartphones. We’re now rolling this out on desktop as well. You can either go to google.com/travel or search for something like “hotels in Tokyo” or “Vancouver” to find travel information from a variety of sources in one place.

The feature is similar to Google Trips app that Google launched last year but this requires internet access. Google also plans to make trips and other related information accessible through Google Maps in the coming months.
